License Revocation

If you have been arrested for a DUI, BUI, or teenage drunk driving in the state of Florida, you only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request an administrative hearing regarding the suspension or revocation of your driver's license. Florida driving laws stipulate that drivers who fail a breathalyzer test lose their driving privileges for six months, while those who refuse to submit to a breathalyzer test can have their license suspended for a year.

 

However, the law allows for a license revocation hearing prior to this action. If you have been arrested for a DUI, you have the right to request an administrative hearing regarding your driving privileges in the state of Florida. Evidence presented against you at this hearing can be used against you in your later DUI case, but so can evidence or facts presented in your favor. An experienced Florida criminal defense attorney knows how to traverse these kinds of hearings, and can help you keep your driver's license.

 

Failure to request an administrative review hearing will result in the automatic suspension of your driver's license.  It is advisable that defendants use the same Florida criminal defense lawyer for both the administrative review hearing and the DUI court case. This is because both situations typically involve all of the same evidence-the facts surrounding the original arrest.

 

The amount of time that your license is revoked for increases with each offense. For example, if you have been arrested for a DUI in the past, the state of Florida requires that your license be revoked for a period of five years. You are eligible to have a review for a hardship reinstatement after a period of one year.  A third DUI conviction in the state of Florida results in your license being revoked for at least 10 years. A fourth offense results in permanent revocation. If you have had multiple DUIs, attaining an experienced Florida criminal defense lawyer is absolutely pertinent for the protection of your legal rights.

 

If your license is revoked in the state of Florida, you will have to pay additional fees in order to get it reinstated. In addition, you may be required by the state to retake your driver's license examination, depending on the length of time that has lapsed since it was renewed. The costs of getting a driver's license reinstated is in addition to any fines or fees imposed by the court from the actual DUI, as well as the cost of having your vehicle impounded.
